Television spin-offs are a tricky business. For every success like "Frasier," which was birthed by "Cheers," there's a "Tortellis" flop of the same lineage.

If you want to call it a spin off, then do it in another show. The writers didn't know what they were doing. I felt lost and frankly bored with the new cast members and the script. The main characters of Grey's had bit parts where there the new ones didn't interest me. Oh and here is a dose of ridiculous, a total stranger - pregnant stranger trusts ONLY Addison to perform surgery. Puleaase. What a let down.

I'm sad to see Addison leaving Grey's, but I kinda like the new cast. Granted Grey's cast is better and we also know more about them, but this spin off has some potential. Not to mention Tim Daly and Kate Walsh look great together, Taye Diggs is GREAT, and the surfer guy...enough said! The spin off will never be as good as Grey's, its my favorite show, but I think its just something new and exciting to watch and Grey's has a big change to pull in their audience!
